  • Am Vor Monat

    Vanity FairVanity Fair

    Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen and Moses Ingram each answer the same seven questions about Star Wars. Anakin Skywalker (Christensen), Obi-Wan Kenobi (McGregor), and Reva (Ingram) will star in the Disney+ new miniseries Obi-Wan Kenobi premiering on May 27th. How would they describe their characters? What was McGregor's initial reaction when he was cast in Star Wars? Did the new series change their perception of the Star Wars universe?

Obi Wan already knew Anakin Skywalker is Darth Vader. Check out Star Wars Revenge of the Sith, Him and Yoda look into security footage and Lord Sidious says Rise Lord Vader. Then Yoda calls Anakin Lord Vader.

I think what made people unfortunately dislike Hayden's portrayal in the Prequels was mainly that they didn't actually understand who Anakin was supposed to be. All that they knew was that he was Luke's father and that he became Darth Vader. With all of the other shows (especially the Clone Wars) fleshing out Star Wars canon and fleshing out characters like Anakin, we can really understand that Hayden played the part perfectly. He perfectly embodied what George wanted Anakin to be and people just didn't get it.

Anakin was also gaslighted for years by the Supreme Chancellor whispering in his ear about what he 'deserved ' and how he was being marginalised and ignored by the Jedi Council of course. Personally, if I could make one change in the prequels I would have had Anakin believe he was reasonable for Padme's death - after all that time fearing losing her, to then believe he was the one who caused her death would probably push most over the emotional edge. Padme just magically dying like a Victorian woman with the vapours didn't really do it for me as a sufficiently emotional driver.

That historical attack and subsequent reversal might be a lesson for today's fans to consider when they are savaging the current crop of actors in Star Wars films/shows. It's one thing to get stick into obviously poor writing, editing, etc, if justrified but extremely few, if any, of the actors have deserved anything like the sheer abuse they have received .

You're completely wrong Just Arkon. I saw the original Star Wars in 1978. I grew up with Star Wars. The millions like me that grew up with SW UNDERSTOOD who Anakin was going to be and had a good idea as to how he was going to get there. The problem with the prequals was George Lucas. His terrible writing and his inept ability to direct actors (look this up, it's not a secret). The prequals were poorly directed and "fleshed out." As a result the actors especially Hayden were very wooden while having to deliver "corny" lines. Also, Hayden at the time was not a strong enough actor, nor experienced enough to push through it like the other more experienced actors. So his performance suffered as did the movies and other actors. Lucas dropped that ball. Not the actors or the long time fans.

I love that Ewan brought up the toughness of the green screen stage. Because in hindsight, that whole process was still real actively new in that capacity. People will criticize it but Lucas was a visionary for the uses of the technology at the time. Sloppy execution on parts but look at what we have now. Most Marvel movies are CGI and now incorporate a bit of realistic environments, but Star Wars kinda brought that to the forefront

An actor friend always says that 'acting is reacting' - working in a green/blue screen environment must be a whole new skill set for an actor when they don't have anyone in shot to react to. I'd love to hear more about that process for actors since green screen is so ubiquitous now.

@toni M Yeah, real sets help for sure. I guess, not having so many CGI characters helps too :-) I think this is what critics of Jar Jar, or rather of Ahmed Best, forget - if I recall correctly, he was present physically on the set in a costume, that helped other actors I believe, compared to Kaminoans, who were just a ball on a stick I believe Ewan said :-)

Vor 19 Tage

@Cat Final One of the major differences is that unless it was a major fight sequence/ unrealistic setting, the majority of those movies could be shot on a set. Meaning the actors could immerse themselves into the characters more. Maybe the acting wouldn’t have been so heavily criticized if the actors could have been on less blue/ green screen sets. Edit: that may have come of as condescending on accident on second read. Sorry

Well, Matrix (1999) also used a lot of green screen. Original Star Wars used blue screen. It is quite an old technology. What was new in nineties was the extensive use of CGI.

I feel sorry about the hatred Hayden had to deal with after the prequels. He is very committed, I heard he researched his own role as Anakin - and David Prowse's Vader - for a cohesive acting. It's a nice thing to do, and it shows, it gives the deserved "filling" to the villain, layers of deepness. And he looks like a really nice guy.

Idk why but seeing Hayden again almost brings a tear of joy to my eye. I never felt that he deserved all that hate that he had gotten like at all! He is actually really good in other movies but no one could seem to see past the whiny “I hate sand! It’s rough, course and gets everywhere” thing which is tremendous saddening because he deserved so much more. And people don’t even understand why he hated sand so much either! For those who didn’t understand sand was an allegory for other stuff in his life. For example: he hated sand because where he was raised as a slave was full of sand the worst parts of his life where on a planet full of sand, his mom died on that sandy planet to Tusken Raiders aka Sand People. Like the worst aspects of his life where involved with sand that’s why he hated. He grew up with nothing but sand and everytime he was around it he was reminded of all the bad he had to endure. So, he wasn’t just saying he hated sand to make an edgy sand remark it was meaning behind it but no one even looked past what he said.

It's great to see Ewan mention Ahmed Best so much, who didn't deserve the hate that was given to him for Jar Jar in the movies. Jar Jar was an weird character, and was only thrown in for little kids, but Ahmed did not deserve any hate, he played that character the way Lucas wanted it played. I hope we get a little scene of Jar Jar helping to get Obi-Wan transport, or maybe saving Obi-Wan, in the series. Maybe show a slightly more competent, older Jar Jar. Actors don't server being treated like trash because they play a crappy and out of place, or in some cases, disappointing character (ex: Hayden played the Anakin that Lucas wanted). #JusticeForJarJar.

I got a little emotional when hayden talked about getting the role, I now a lot of people and myself relate to that child-like joy, it just made it sadder for me to think all the backlash he got, in the end it was just a guy excited to do what he loves and take on this character. Im so glad he's getting so much support now, you can tell he's excited to be back despite everything and it was brave of him, I can't wait to see him in obi wan.

This series is the best and all credit goes to Ewan and Hayden and especially Dave Filoni to bring the magic back into Obi-wan and Anakin/Vader relationship!!! Star War fans were really critical and didn't give Hayden enough credit for being Anakin Skywalker and then filling in Vader's helmet because it was simply no easy task!!! I love Hayden as Anakin/Vader because without him Star Wars wouldn't be what it is today!!! Propers to Hayden for taking all the negative criticism and turning it into fuel to renew the role!!!

I was on the fence about episodes 1-3 when they came out. Enjoyed them but wasn't sure about theitlr authenticity. Now though I love them and what they brought to the star wars story. In fact they at least brought a new story unlike episode 7 which was "let's take episode 4 and change a few details"

Wow! This is my childhood wish coming true. I never thought I would see any of the original cast come back. I fell so in love with Anakin and Padmes relationship, I was so heartbroken Anakin turned to the dark side to protect Padme but she ended up dying. It would have been nice seeing them together still but they had a good run with the time they had together. My memorable scene was Padmes funeral. They made her look so beautiful in the funeral scene. Anakin lost the woman he loved, she left behind 2 beautiful babies she just gave birth to, Padme still believed there’s good in him and ended the romance.

@luiz alves I think that's one of the major points about Anakin - he was never the master of his own life. He was always a slave through his whole life. On Tatooine; to the Jedi doctrine (and the prophecy); to Sidious.

I think the fact that many viewers are not the biggest fans of Jar Jar (myself included) just goes to show how good of a job Ahmed Best did as an actor. It was established early on that Jar Jar is a ditzy, clumsy, annoying Gungan, and Best did a pretty good job of portraying that. Respect ✊

@LoreLauno yeah I just don’t get it at all. These people are just trying to be a part of a story they love or I dunno even just trying to get paid in some cases lol. I don’t know how people have so much time on their hands that they have to go tell the actor personally how awful they are when really it’s the writer’s/director’s job to make you like the character or not. I’m not a complete fan of jar jar’s antics but I do like jar jar as a character in general, and either way I’m not about to go tell the actor that his comedy scenes suck. Same with jake lloyde. Like I actually thought he did pretty good. Some of the dialogue is clunky and silly but that’s just a product of George Lucas Star Wars. So I dunno 🤷🏼‍♂️ it’s just weird to me.

I feel like that's the problem with Ingram. She's not a bad actress, however I feel like having no Star Wars background before portraying a character of that universe is a big downside of her performance in the series. Reva kind of just feels out of place, it's hard to explain, it's like her line delivery is wrong a lot of the times. I'm glad her arc at least gets a proper closure in the finale, but still her character was underwhelming.

Playing off of what Hayden said about it being a wrap on the character of Anakin. Anakin is still there under that suit. He always was. While yes Vader is at the forefront, Anakin still remains in the back of his head and still as we've seen has moments of resurfacing. It's still a role I would like to see him in.
